Famous quotes containing the words women and/or winter:
“...black women write differently from white women. This is the most marked difference of all those combinations of black and white, male and female. Its not so much that women write differently from men, but that black women write differently from white women. Black men dont write very differently from white men.”
—Toni Morrison (b. 1931)
“I walked abroad in a snowy day;
I asked the soft snow with me to play;
She played and she melted in all her prime,
And the winter called it a dreadful crime.”
—William Blake (17571827)
